Olivia was taken home by her Lord earlier this night. Her pain is now over and she is in his presence.
She passed away peacefully while she was sleeping. This was a mercy not only to her, but to her family.
Olivia and Éva, November 2006

Please continue to pray for the Waldens. Olivia’s pain is now over, but the grief and sadness of those left behind is just beginning.

Karyn, thanks for posting these beautiful pictures. My deepest sympathies to Phil and his family.
My heart is heavy, but our burden is light in consideration of what is to come. But yes, these are tough, troubling times.
We’ll be praying for comfort and the kind of hope that only someone who knows the Lord can grieve with…
Hi, my name is Becca and I went to SOTA with Olivia. We all loved her very dearly and will miss her deeply, but we KNOW that she is home with her Lord and Savior. My friend from dance and I were talking about her and she said I want to dance with her one more time.I do believe we all do. She also said I know God likes it, but I want to see her smile one more time.We all do.I hope and pray that we will all get to see her again one day. I wish we could all dance with her one more time…….
I didn’t know Olivia and I don’t know you but my heart mourns with you. Please know that I will be praying for you all.
I was praying for Olivia and received updates of her through Becky Hilton. (We were friends growing up and I knew your family through the Armao clan.) I am still praying for your family through these times that the Lord will comfort you all.
With deepest sympathy, Jennifer
I thank you for this page. Olivia danced with my daughters, and I work in a hospital near her home in Jersey Shore. The brief time that I knew Olivia was a blessing. Her faith, grace and beauty are unforgettable. She danced like an angel. My heart breaks for her family. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.
Our prayers are with you,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss, I met Olivia a few times thru my daughter Denyel Asplund, they had co-op together she was a lovely young girl. i know her and Denyel were close, this hit denyel very hard, but we both know that she is not suffering anymore, and that she is rejoicing with her heavenly father, and we will see her again one day. May god give all of you the strength that you need in this time sorrow. our prayers are with you all..
Love Chris (Denyel’s Mom)
